$84.10 $140.16

Shipping to United States: $35.41

Vintage 1900s Linen (heavy) Sheet which has hand embroidery in pink silk at the header.
It’s been stored for many years but never used, and is still nicely thick, crisp and stiff with "size" and of a mid oatmeal colour it will eventually lighten and soften with use and washing.

Above this is a row of 1cm wide jours on a double hem, and again the hours between the areas which are embroidered
The Jours or ladders are wide enough to weave silk ribbon through, and a good length of vintage pink ribbon will be provided for you to use as a trim.

This is one stunningly beautiful sheet. Originally they would have been used as both a bed sheet or a bathing sheet. These were placed into the copper bath tub to protect the bather from the heat of the fires underneath.

The sheet itself is a lovely mid oatmeal colour with flecks of a lighter butter cream.
The fabric isn’t refined but has some darker husks, nobbles and raised runs within the weave-please see photos
It measures;
Width; 91 inches or 230 cm
Length; 112 inches or 280 cm

The embroidery is 4” deep (11cm)
The outer edges are loom finished. The top and bottom gems are hand stitched
It would make an excellent bed sheet, sham, coverlet or a warm curtain lining for boutique bedroom.
These sheets look equally well as a drape, a door curtain or window blind, due in part to their weight, thickness and stiffening.
The fabric weighs a tad over 2k
